the _pic.a libraries are special case we could choose to stop
shipping.  they're useful if someone wants to build a special
case application for some reason (tm), but almost never used
by the vast majority of people.

they're created as part of create the .so, and the .so has
its debug info moved out, but apparently we've never created
any makefile or sets infrastructure to do this for _pic.a.

perhaps we should choose not to install them by default.

you can turn it off already with MKPICINSTALL=no.
